This post is being written out of frustration and the amount of misinformation being spread by Indian reviewers. Using lux meters to test the panel and providing subjective opinions about panel and color reproduction. I don't even know how to educate people about what it means to review a display tech properly but the amount of bs coming out of the mouth of these reviewers is astonishing. Apparently, they are so good that they can judge color accuracy and color space just by looking at the panel. The only tech reviewer I have found to be comparable to International standards is Digit. But some of these reviewers are just full of themselves and even disregard rtings at times. Tv units can vary from region to region but a VA panel is going to remain the same, suddenly Samsung or Hisense isn't going to manufacture a new IPS panel for a different model. I saw a review today of Samsung Frame 2022 (i guess you know who I am talking about). He claims the Indian unit is different from the USA unit, I haven't heard anything about the Indian Unit of Samsung the frame 2022 is different from the USA unit. Also, using a lux meter to measure brightness and then reading lux numbers as nits? WTF, what kind of testing methodology is that? Something seriously needs to change, people are being misinformed and lots of wrong information is being propagated by ill-educated people. Tech is already overpriced in India compared to PPP and without proper reviews, with hard data points, people are spending money on something being hyped for no apparent reason. I hope you guys can provide your insight and maybe even provide a way to educate people in the right way.
